While booking this hotel we checked our friends who are locals in Rishikesh. Nobody seemed to know for certain about this. We took a chance and booked it drawing a parallel with Tree of Life Jaipur. We were not disappointed. There are a few points to note though 1. The lodge is situated about 17 km from Rishikesh on NH... More

We came to Rishikesh for a belated honeymoon and were recommended the Tree of Life. A beautiful setting right by the Ganges and away from busy Rishikesh. The room was good with a great view of the river. The staff were attentive and helpful. And the food was also really good.

Very aptly named as 'The Himalayan Hideaway', it is actually a little difficult to spot if you are visiting the place for the first time and there is no one to guide you. We did take a little bit of time to find the place but from then on it was nothing short of bliss. It is nothing like your... More

This hidden little hideaway in the Lower Himalayas is food for the soul. My husband and I spent the weekend there with another couple and their two teenage daughters and we all found it to be a serene experience. It is the perfect place to totally disconnect. No televisions, refrigerators, or wired internet connections to pull you back to the... More

We stayed at the Himalayan Hideaway Lodge in February 2014. It is a beautiful, quaint place to stay. The food is excellent and the staff could not be more helpful.

From the word go it was an experience beyond all expectations. We were greeted by heavy rains as we drove to this idyllic abode tucked away in the hills. The visibility was near zero and we were out of network boundaries. Slowly the mountains embraced us and we lost the world, except for a few cars zipping past us. All... More

The sort of review that you have written is truly "heart warming" for me as the owner. Its wonderful to know that you have picked up on the little nuances of the interiors and the exteriors and you have "felt" exactly what we wanted to communicate!! We don't want to pontificate or "tell" people how they should enjoy their holiday.....that's... More

We were there over the weekend for the Rishikesh Half Marathon. Our room was spacious and comfortable overlooking the Ganga. A nice retreat with no television or mobile/3G connectivity to intrude. The small restaurant on premise served excellent food, including chicken and beer. Good for those of us deprived in a dry and vegetarian place. Good service and nice staff.
